Vision

Establish measures for the access, use, and protection of Ursinus College data and core systems.

Mission

Establish and maintain a working central repository containing the information required for the management and use of data stored. 

Purpose

The Data Standards and Governance Committee was established to develop, document, and implement practices and usage standards for Ursinus College's core systems that store, feed, or use institutional data. 

Membership

The Data Standards and Governance Committee consists of representatives from across the college.  Membership will be drawn largely from offices with data acquisition, maintenance, and management responsibilities of core systems. Membership will be limited to keep the team functioning efficiently. As needed, temporary members will be called in to support and advise in their areas of expertise.

Responsibility

The responsibilities of the Data Standards and Governance Committee include, but are not limited to, the items listed in this section.

Scope

The Data Standards and Governance Committee is responsible for the collection, development and documentation of standards to properly manage the data stored in Ursinus College Administrative Systems, Colleague and related systems. These standards are considered the college standards and shall be adhered to by everyone at Ursinus College.


Questions We Ask as a Committee

  1. What data is important to me, and how can I improve its usefulness?
  2. How can we improve our data working together?
  3. How can we leverage data to better understand the college and capture the opportunities it faces?
  4. What will we do?


The four committee questions are an extension of Ursinus College's "Questions" as we look to improve what we do as a community.  More information on the Ursinus College questions can be found at https://www.ursinus.edu/quest/the-questions/index.php
